As I've stated in every review I'll post of this series, 22 minutes is short by 1950s standards. 24 to 26 minutes was more common. Maybe this was an exception to the rule?
Doesn't matter, because while most episodes of this series are charming and fun, this episode is awful, fucking awful bullshit and frankly I'd go as far as calling it racist.

Cast: Jackie Gleason (Chester A. Riley), Rosemary DeCamp (Peg), Bob Jellison (Waldo), Alan Reed (Punchy), Lanny Rees (Jumior), Sid Tomack (Gillis) and Gloria Winters (Babs).
What a stupidity; this serie (The life of Riley) is a big disgrace.
